Pouches can be boring, but monsters are fun!  So join us and turn an ordinary, utilitarian pouch into a monster!  

This swap will be small and quick, so even if you are busy you can fit it into your schedule.  Its also good for any first-time swappers who might feel overwhelmed by bigger swaps.  The pouch can be any size or shape, based on your partners request, and it does NOT have to have a zipperyou can use Velcro, or a button-and-loop, or make a sleeve that doesnt close at all.  And the monster part is entirely up to you; let your imagination run wild!

This swap was inspired by the cute little monster pouches HERE.  Try googling monster pouch if you need some ideas to get your creativity flowing!  There are monster tissue pouches HERE and a cell phone case HERE.

Pouch Ideas:
Makeup pouch
Pencil pouch
Electronics sleeve
Glasses/sunglasses case
Tissue cozy
Re-usable snack bag

Details of swap:
--You will craft one pouch, decorated like a monster, using any pattern, design, or technique (including knitting or crocheting), keeping your partners preferences in mind.  Thats it!  Just one item to craft!
--Put a little something inside the pouch as a surprise gift; something like a snack or crafting supply (a crafted item is okay too, but not required).
--You will have a little over 2 weeks to craft, from 3/3/12 to 3/20/12.
-- Please post in this thread (or the gallery thread) at least once a week so we know you are still crafting with us.

- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizers and your partner know ASAP.
- Good communication is very important.  Please stay in touch by posting weekly in the swap thread.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery, and take pictures of what you make before you send it.

Arg, I keep saying I'm going to take a break from swaps to focus on my beadwork, and somehow someone twists my arm very very slightly and I'm right back in! I just sent in my questionnaire! I better hope I can have a very productive weekend, after having planned and thrown a baby shower! But how could I resist!? Cheesy I guess it doesn't take too much to twist my arm  Grin

Hmmm I haven't done a Leslie/Susnab swap for a while!

I don't think I'm going to join this time guys.  I'll probably see whats going on for the next swap.  I've got a lot going on with the other 3 swaps I'm in now, and I don't want to get in over my head.  Smiley  I'll stalk the gallery when it gets put up.

I couldn't wait or say no either - so I jumped in. I will practice a few zipper mouths this week. Funnily enough, I bought 3 zippers for $2. at the fabric store just last week!
